      15mn from airport

      Noisy as next to tain lane and highway

    • Group of friends
      5.4

      The location is perfect for "Centro de Congressos" in Lisbon; rooms were very clean and spacious;

      Staff was not very nice and polite; it's a noisy hotel; they should pay more attention to the food quality because we ate some melon at breakfast which was not in the apropriate conditions (it smelled and tested badly, and we could see the mold!!). For this reason, I would not recommend this hotel

    • Single
      7.4

      I was there for 1 week and I had multiple requests during my stay. Staff were extremely helpful. Breakfast was good, too. Excellent value for money, nice atmosphere.

      This hotel is extremely noisy on the side towards the bridge (could barely get any sleep before I got another room). The rooms, although nicely decorated, have some functional issues (bad smell, tv not working...). I recommend this hotel, it's a good one but the noise coming from the bridge is unbearable (not on the other side, though).

    • Group of friends

      Breakfast was great

      Did not like that there was no internet in the rooms and quite honestly, paying for the gym was unacceptable considering I had booked the hotel because it had a gym in the first place.

    • Group of friends
      7.4

      The staff was very friendly, the room was clean and comfortable, the restaurant was nice and it was very close to the conference center. I was on the "quiet side" of the hotel, so I can't comment on the noise.

      It was significantly more expensive on the weekdays since it is so close to the conference center. However, it is not close to the rest of Lisbon (although it is right by a tram/bus stop, which goes into the city center).

    • Single

      clean and good style

      noise from near by bridge and windows that cannot be open.

    • Family with children

      Noisy on the night of sat to sunday quality of add bed rather poor

    • Single
      5.8

      Location is excellent for the Congress Conference Centre.

      It has little to recommend it other than the location for conferences at the Congress. Next to large bridge and railway lines, hence noisy and the beds are hard. So don't bank on too much easy sleep!

    • Single
      5.4

      The staff were quite slow at check-in and didn't seem particularly organised. The cable internet in the room was intermittent and very frustrating, asked for a refund and received one. Breakfast good. Wouldn't stay here again unless to attend the congress center which is within walking distance.

    • Group of friends
      7.8

      Good location, friendly staff, clean and pleasant decor.

      There was no free internet access.

    • Couple
      5.4

      The location, with tram and bus stop to the centre of Lisbon and the Belem area very close by. Proximity to the river, restaurants and bars area of Docas (need to cross over a busy route and train line via a foot bridge at about 100m distance). Rooms and breakfast did not disappoint.

      The hotel is located right under one of the bridges over the river Tagus, and our room was overlooking it. The window did not close properly, hence seemed that this was open, leaving the noise of trains, cars and lorries coming in. This was certainly the worst experience have had in a hotel of this standard. The duty manager explained they are repairing the windows with such problems, but yet, the management knowing the existing problem continues to sell these rooms for the same price. The fact that the parking, wi-fi in the rooms and gym/pool is not included in the price of the room.

      The breakfast and the restaurant

      The beds are a bit hard and the pillows and covers are not nice at all begin synthetic. The pillows are very uncomfortable.

    • Single

      Excellent location for access to congress centre. Modern and pleasant. Good breakfasts. Beds not comfortable . Spa and pool quiet and staff helpful.

      Mattress thin and not comfortable

      Waiters at restaurant were fantastic, especially Miguel.

      Have to pay to use the gym and pool

      The staff were very helpful

      The location is a little out of the way. There is no iron available or kettle in the room.
